Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine and front board in black on red, top edge red. Spine gently cocked and sunned, boards lightly scuffed and soiled, corners a touch bumped, small blue ink scribble to front pastedown, very slight offsetting from the lightly tanned title page, text block strained in a few places but firm, occasional red pencil underlining. A very good copy.
